Kirk Cousins believes Vikings have more potential ahead of trip to Seattle

first_imgWhile the Vikings haven’t won as much as they would have liked in Kirk Cousins’ first season with the team at quarterback, the seven-year veteran sees potential in the Minnesota squad as it faces a Week 14 matchup with huge playoff implications.The Vikings will travel to Seattle on Monday with a potential playoff spot on the line. Minnesota has just four regular-season games remaining, and holds the No. 6 seed in the NFC. The Seahawks currently hold the No. 5 spot. Vikings WR Adam Thielen explains exchange with Patriots coach Bill Belichick “We’ve shown we’re a really good football team and can do some great things and have a lot to be excited about, and yet have still dropped a couple of games here and there and made some mistakes that get you beat,” Cousins said. “So, the consistency at a high level of play is what we’re looking to do here.” Seahawks activate Mychal Kendricks, coach Pete Carroll says he’s ‘ready to go’ coming off suspensioncenter_img Cousins signed a whopping three-year, fully guaranteed deal worth $84 million with the Vikings this offseason. Since joining the Minnesota organization, he’s completed 71.3 percent of his passes for 3,490 yards, 23 touchdowns and nine interceptions, but the Vikings are 6-5-1 on the year. “I do think that we can point to some times throughout the year where we’ve underachieved, not because we weren’t giving effort or preparation, but we just haven’t been able to sustain the level of potential in this locker room, play in and play out,” Cousins said, via the Pioneer Press.Two losses in the team’s last three games certainly hasn’t helped, but Cousins would rather focus on what has gone right for Minnesota, including wins over the Packers and Eagles and a 22-point, fourth-quarter comeback that forced a tie with Green Bay in the first matchup of the season.
